I did wonder whether you had seen a JGB show. I missed some nice opportunities to see them before that in NJ, although fortuitously I did get some JGB tapes back then. I saw a lot of Jerry shows later on. He was always awesome :)

I sure wish I'd have gotten my ass to some JGB shows!! And count me in for loving I'll Take a Melody. I love the simple themes of the lyrics, the fisherman, the musical notes, the Keep on Shining... to me beautiful. I think the song was written by Allen Toussaint. Jerry sang it with real passion, really made it his own story, like he could do with the Dylan songs - or really anything he loved.
